  1. Bay blows harder than the wind. I hope this is the end of Michael Bay's Interpretation of Transformers!
  2. I have transformed Rodimus Convoy over twenty times & he is still intact with absolutely no issues, just the best MP figure to be released to date, well worth the $217.00 via BBTS, (Thanks Joel). When I was in high school my brother bought me an original Optimus Prime (Convoy) with the bloated gun & fists for $80 & that was insane at that time. (pricewise & on this find back in 99 this was in my mind a rare find) We probably have all paid an extreme price for a generation 1 figures (pre re-release era) & these figures were far from perfect. We pay the price for what ever we perceive as perfect. I'm just glad the generation 1 series lives. I remember that horrible feeling of excepting that my favorite series was canceled, i was crushed, then it came back with generation 2. Long live this awesome line that has spawned so much over the years.
  3. This line has completely lost its focus. improving Accuracy… Thats Bull****! This is called the Masterpiece line. We have paid GOOD money to support this line. At this point it is pure speculation but if Tomy / Takara pulls a move like this it would be like slapping us all in the face! As mentioned by Remy they have milked the Convoy mold for everything it was worth & then some. If the rumors of a scaled down version is true I will be done collecting transformers all together. I shelled out $150 for Grimlock & $200 for Rodimus / Hot Rod due to the price of plastic going up or some Bull**** but $250!!! We better be getting a new character that takes this line to another level. Come on Tomy / Takara don't let your biggest fans down.
  4. Is it me or is the front portion of rodimus a little long?
  5. After sooo many years of this monkey room thread I never really bothered to check what this was, the only thing I ever saw was the topic name, I always thought "what are people taking about & why is this in the transformers section???" After a while it got frustrating but alas I finally gave in today & read what the jazz was all about, blogging, pretty neat, a community for fellow tf'ers to find other common denominators. I would have preferred calling it the "Purple Monkey Dishwasher" topic. Taken from an old simpsons episode, it kinda fits. Anyway just thought I would add to this monkey room fiasco as it has been LONG overdue, as you were…
  6. For some reason I assumed MP Roddy would be more like MP Grimlock as far as simplicity in transformation functions however the more I read the more I am convinced about that sensitivity of this figure. I am beginning to fear the day I confront this bad boy. With Megs I accidentally snapped the hooks on the hip areas while transforming him from gun to robot mode. I hope rodimus doesn't follow this unfortunate path. Here's to waiting 2 more days & taming this transformable rubiks cube.
  7. Excellent! I favor the notion of $200 being excessive however since it is a triple changer that has been executed so well I can accept this as a fair price. Now comes the waiting game…
  8. I am very satisfied with this Masterpiece. Two things; I think they should have made the legs extend when converting Hot Rod to Rodimus & the shoulders should be able to be raised as well. (though I think this feature will be possible after studying the final product images) I would have preferred the lower legs grey just as they were in the movie & for some reason I find the black outline around the flames on the chest to stick out like a sore thumb. Overall I'm very satisfied! Love the accessories… Does anyone know the ETA?
  9. The eyes were blue in the original "cartoon" series however when the action figure was released it was given red eyes, seeing as how this is the masterpiece version it has to live up to it's name so knowing how anal us collectors are now a days there giving us both styles, I for one applaud Takara/Tomy for this move as if it were any other greedy corporation they would have made a chase/variant version! The thought alone makes me sick! So point in case 150 for having the choice of either or is the best of both worlds IMO. ®…
  10. When are the preview pics of Falcon & Nemesis Enforcer leaking?
  11. Uh... Isn't Bombshell Cyclonus, & Skywarp the armada that was destroyed in the movie???
  12. I would have to say that the greatest re-issues to date would have to be the ones that were never available to the U.S. That is unless you had a lot of luck & were willing to spend up to $500.00 for each, all the true transformer junkies know where I'm going with this... None other than Twincast & Soundblaster!
  13. Beast wars was great… all the real G1 lovers (such as myself) thought it was an awsome addition to the story as it tied in with G1 towards the transmetal series I.E. my favorite beast wars seasons! I only bought the transmetal figs cause they were so… you know so… hmm… awesome!!!!… for lack of a better term.
  14. He's fairly difficult to transform, I thought I was going to decapitate megs for a minute, I won't lie I've scratched some paint on several areas during the transformation, my best advice is push the head down completely & push it back while placing the shell on the head you could scrap the head corners easily, truth about the price is I don't know exactly I still haven't got billed…haha! Yet anyway it usually takes a couple days for it to show in my bank account. Standard SAL, the email sent said it would be delivered between 4 to 10 days, it took 6 days. Just pop it off. Basically, the yellow cap is a plug that isn't glued on the toy. I concur… your index finger & thumb…& a couple of seconds to laugh about how easy that was, keep the plug F@#! it! It's part of TF history now.
  15. I recieved my MP-05 Megs today & I'll just say that I took more time opening the box then removing the infamous "cap." This $@#! is straight heat!!! Thank You HLJ for the fast shipping, got here in 4 days, too bad he's discontinued on thier site.
  16. Yeah flat out his head sucks! I mean its not suppose to be that long & it is WAY TO THIN, I honestly think the height & width of the head were mixed up, he has Tyra Banks forehead for Christ's sake, & to top it off they didn't give him his "eyebrows" ( the 2 black line on top of his eyes) what gives??? Dammit another project I don't have time to do!
  17. Yup, I got a confirmation that my megs has been shipped!!! Now I wait
  18. I noticed that he has 2 pegs on each shoulder, any ideas as to what the purpose of these are? Perhaps Takara is going to release him in the future with new features (a crown and giant shoulder blades with a cape) It is possible seeing as how takara did it with convoy & maybe even his original color scheme. Sorry if it's been brought up I just thought I'd share that with you guys
  19. Mp Starscream is a well deserved name, an absolute beauty, I can honestly say that it's one of the best looking figs I have ever owned…ever! I was quick to judge off the color scheme simply because I wanted a true to the character look but I quickly got over it, once I applied the Decepticon stickers I was won over. As for the sides connected to the hip, I don't mind it after all I only transform and display Starscream, who would really be dumb enough to play with a hundred dollar toy. This figure is superb overall, I would've liked a wider head like in the series and if the upper torso didn't slide so much but then again nothing is flawless
  20. So is there a method to connect the chest to the torso to stop/prevent the upper body from sliding? I noticed a piece on SS's lower back that could connect to the cockpit but I can't seem to make it work. Any suggestions would help.
  21. Face Off Hulk is the best route, I collect figures that look good, not figures that are based off there EXACT characteristics, I mean come on if your going to put that in perspective then the detail alone would force you to pass on most figs due to paint apps. If face off Hulk is not your bag then go with the gamma punch hulk, I have him loose to end your search.
  22. Damn, I need to go to fairfield just for toys??? This sucks I live in the south bay and the only thing I've found of that wave was sabertooth, and I had to go to union city.....union city....the south bayis completely dry on ML's. I got to retire from this line I can't even get my hands on series 13.
  23. If anyone here is going can you get me anyone of these? I want one for my collection. thanks
  24. You're correct theres a thread about a purple shin akuma and pics provided in links to compare every akuma released by Sota.
  25. Thanks for the response, the only one at that, yeah I figured so I coped it off ebay for a reasonable amount. 20 bucks shipped.
